HC Deb 26 October 1908 vol 194 cc1603-4

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War how many long Lee-Enfield rifles have now been converted for the use of the Territorial Force; when the necessary total number will be completed; and when the converted rifles will be issued.


20,500 rifles have been converted. The date when the required number will be completed depends on the money available in future years, and cannot at present be estimated. It has not yet been decided when the converted rifle will be issued.
